When Does My 1993 Acura Legend Radiator Need Service?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Acura Legend radiator serviced, but it’s vital to know what to look for. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. So, what happens when the radiator isn’t working quite like it should? You guessed it – your engine overheats, and it may even break down completely.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1993 Acura Legend is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. Acura recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown if you notice a low coolant light or higher-than-normal engine temperatures on your dashboard, or if you spot coolant leaks coming from your car. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

Radiator Repair Service for Your Acura Legend

What’s included in a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Acura Legend cooling system. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check for leaks.

If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too. Some services for your 1993 Acura Legend engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you can't put off repairing or replacing. This pump ensures that coolant is always flowing through the radiator, hoses, and engine. If it isn’t functioning properly, your engine won’t be able to stay within its optimal temperature range. Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to ensure everything is operating as it should. If you’re about to lose your cool over a too-hot engine, rest assured that we’re here to give your 1993 Acura Legend the top-notch service it needs. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Acura Legend Radiator Q&A

Wondering how to make your 1993 Acura Legend radiator last as long as possible? Read on for answers to common questions, and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care when your engine shows any signs of a faulty radiator.

  • What does the coolant light on my Acura dashboard mean? Pay attention to the temperature gauge and lights on your dashboard. If a low coolant warning light comes on or your dashboard temperature gauge keeps rising, it’s likely that your engine is about to overheat (and could leave you stranded on the road). Wait for the engine to cool down, then have your coolant system checked immediately at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? Don’t ignore puddles on your driveway or garage floor. If you see a green, bright orange, or pink fluid puddling under your car (it might be sticky, too), it could be antifreeze that’s leaking out of the engine. Antifreeze has a sweet, attractive smell to cats and dogs (and it’s highly toxic to them), so look out for your pets! Repair any leaks as soon as possible, then carefully wash away any remaining fluid that’s left behind on the driveway or garage floor.
  • Can Acura Legend radiators be cleaned? Cleaning your car shouldn’t be limited to the parts you can see. Regular cleaning is good for your radiator, too! When you take your Acura Legend in for routine maintenance or service, it could be a good idea to opt for a radiator cleaning, too.
